Remote Attendance ONLY this Month

Magic and make-believe might seem like child’s play, but their allure is no fantasy: Orlando has now become the most-visited city in the United States, with 62.7 million visitors annually. However, as our world is changing, so too is our ability to sustainably provide a fairy tale microcosm that’s hidden away from the realities of a warming climate, demonstrated by last fall's Hurricane Matthew.

Certainly, as a city whose economy relies upon tourism, we have the complex challenge to ensure that sustainability, equity, and resiliency reach from the foundational needs of our residents up to the heights of our tallest rollercoasters. However, with our enormous audience of visitors, we also have the incredible opportunity to influence the perception of environmental stewardship in communities around the world. 

The goal of this session is to provide our city as a backdrop for integrating the concepts of local vs. global impacts in local government policies and programs, reshaping traditional thinking about what constitutes a luxury vs. a necessity, and identifying how to best leverage unique local characteristics to positively contribute towards international climate change solutions. Intermediate level.


Brittany Sellers, Ph.D., Sustainability Project Manager, City of Orlando
